Joan Rivers Dead - Legendary Comedienne Passes Away at 81

Legendary comedian Joan Rivers has passed away at the age of 81 after going into cardiac arrest during a vocal cord surgery, according to Variety.

The comic genius and E! Fashion Police co-host was suddenly rushed to the hospital last week after when she stopped breathing during a procedure on her throat.

Joan was placed on life support in the hospital in New York City, and from there, her daughter Melissa updated fans periodically. The latest update came just yesterday when Melissa said she was moved out of intensive care and into a private room.

Our thoughts go out to Joan‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

Very sad. I heard they were going to take her off life support today. I will miss Fashion Police and her humor. All the touchy, overly sensitive haters need to get a life. RIP

I wonder why..she supported Israel in a very viral video just a while ago,
and when she walked in for a simple surgery stuff started to happen..
tons of doctors are arabs so..just saying
it’s not unfounded

truly the funniest girl out there
she was lovely
no one is going to be like her

Here’s to a woman who opened many doors for other women in the business. Congratulations on a life lived fearlessly and to the full.

Sorry to see her leave us – the good and the bad.

Rest In Peace Joan. You were an incredibly funny lady and you will be missed. Thanks for the laughs.

she will be missed,

Legend. Very funny lady. R.I.P Joan

One hour before I imagine her in a talk show saying she’s very strong and nothing will stop her. So sad.

Noooo so sad, R.I.P Joan

@Maya:

while i won’t go so far as to say ‘good riddance’, i’m not going to sit there and pretend that she was nice. she wasn’t and was on a tear in her last few months with her nastiness. of course she had a family that loved her, and that’s always sad. but you can bet that if it were someone else laying there on their death bed, she would’ve had a bunch of classless, vicious things to say.

Oh well... @ 09/04/2014 at 3:24 pm

Joan couldn’t escape the wrath of God. Not that long ago she was making a mockery of the women and children that were being massacred in Palestine. Today, she is amongst the dead. #BeCarefulWhatYouSay
